The Willows is a recreational area near West Melton on the banks of the Waimakriri River hosting a shared walking and biking track, picnic and parking areas, fishing points, a motorhome camping area and native planting.
The flat, gravelled track is a good one for children and has plenty of side off shoots if you wish to go off-track to explore the riverside area.
